City Stadium in Lynchburg was a busy place Friday night with Hillcats baseball, right next door to the football tussle between Magna Vista and Heritage.
New Pioneers Head Coach Brad Bradley found himself starting his fourth new job in the last five seasons. From every indication, it's been a smooth transition.
On 1st and 10, Jevontae Parrish conected with Demonte Elliot on a nifty screen pass that picked up 10, moving the chains for the Pioneers, setting up the very next play. Parrish blasted his way through the Warriors' secondary for a 15-yard touchdown on the quarterback keeper.
Later in the third, Bryce Hankins hooked up with Keon Mabin on a pass up the middle, complete for a 14-yard gain and a Magna Vista first down.
On 2nd-and-10, ball on the 50, Parish barrelled his way through the defensive line, and took it all the way for another Heritage touchdown.
On the next possession, a 15-yard late hit call set up the Warriors inside the 10 yardline, and three plays later, Mabin punched it into the endzone for a Warrior touchdown, trailing by 14 with 3:30 to go in the 4th quarter.
Ishanti Rosser picked off a pass from Magna Vista's Calin Jamison to put the finishing touches on a 44 to 30 win.
